"Oh god how did this get in here I am not good with computers" is a catchphrase often associated with a partially cropped picture of Happy Cat on a white sheet of paper. It is used as an ironic way of indicating that someone is technologically inept.


The phrase came from a Something Awful[2] thread titled "You can't fight the man, but I'll damn well try!" posted by user Jer on December 8th, 2004. The thread described how Jer had attempted to fight against a parking ticket using various drawings and diagrams:

To: The City of Sacramento Revenue Division 730 I St. Sacramento, CA 95814 DEAR SIRS I have been the recent recipient of a ticket! This is very bad news for me, and I feel that I have been wronged and must defend my God-given principles. I could pay the ticket off for a mere 50 dollars, but integrity is worth far more than that!! (and I do not have 50 dollars). You are going to find that this letter is overflowing with justice and for this reason I have included a picture of an American flag: GOD BLESS AMERICA!! In this letter, I hope to explain exactly why I do not think I should pay this ticket. Getting out of tickets is a very high priority in my religion, and I was under the impression that America was a place where you could be free from religious persecution. I hope you do not prove me wrong. One day, I came home from work, and it was a very nice day I was in a really good mood because I had a Pepsi, which is my favorite drink, and far better than Coke products, because Coke is red and red is the color of communism! I drove back home to park at my house and change my clothes, and I discovered that the only available parking space was in front of my driveway, so I parked there!! Read on and you'll see why I did this and why it was the right thing, so read on and choose your own adventure! Salutations, eremy Watson more like SARS SECTION 1 (ONE) (PRIMARY) (FIRST): I thought I should start out by showing you what exactly happened here and why I did what I did, I am sorry your honor but I was not thinking clearly, so I plead temporary insanity and I do not think I should have to pay. As the lawyers on TV say, "I object!!!" a diagram of what exactly happened, and he was really nice and did this for me. I hopeI don't have to take him out on a date or do him any favors because he gave me this shifty look as I was getting into my car and said we should play pocket pool sometime. I'm not very good at billiards but here is the picture he made for me: I asked Steve, the guy at the Kinko's down the street to help me out by printing up 1 MY CAR (not a Cumry, that s--- is weak firs My diveway f--- ing hoase This is my front an hoe you Bke it Cracked sidewalk, get out and fix it you zy f--- TREES AND S--- T Street, fuckjob The intersection doesn't know whar he f---! A goddamn bais sep You see!! There was nothing I could do since there was another car parked in front of me and I did not want to hit him because he had a nicer car than I have. It was a Kia or a Hyundai or a Cilantro or something, all these import cars are stealing our jobs and all sound the same to me!!! Anyway he probably has more money than I do and I did not want to mess with him So what am I supposed to do? Should I park in my driveway? WELL NO THAT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA! MORE TICKETS FOR YOU MY FRIEND! Parking in driveway-blocking da sidewalk, mon Blocking sidewalk MORE TICKETS MORE TICKETS = LESS MONEY? F--- NOW WHAT ( DO YOU SEE NOW??? DO YOU SEE THE SITUATION YOU HAVE PUT ME IN?? I AM SO MAD RIGHT NOW SO WHAT SHOULD I HAVE DONE??? I CANNOT PARK ON THE STREET AND I CANNOT PARK IN MY OWN DRIVEWAY THAT I BUILT WITH MY OWN HANDS. WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THIS COUNTRY!! AMERICA HAS GONE TO S--- NOW THAT BUSH IS IN OFFICE, KERRY WOULD'VE SOLVED ALL THESE PROBLEMS!! I WOULD BE ABLE TO PARK MY CAR IN MY OWN DRIVEWAY, STEM CELLS WOULD BE AVAILABLE ON EVERY STREET CORNER AND AMERICA WOULD BE STRONGER BECAUSE IT SAYS SO ON THE KERRY BUMPER STICKER!!!! DOES KERRY LIE? IF HE DID, DO YOU THINK HE WOULD BE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? NO!!!! NEXT TIME I WILL PARK MY CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT MISTER BIGSHOT PRESIDENT BUSH! ARAAGAGGGHGHHH Okay I took some time to myself and I think I can think straight now. As I see it, we can easily prevent this kind of thing from happening, so I have a number of solutions to this ticketing problem that is highly rampant! Stop giving the blue car on T Street tickets of any kind. This would solve the problem immediately, but also increase the murder rate in the area, especially the getting-murdered rate of meter maids and assholes that write me tickets for parking in front of my own driveway. 1. Buy me a new house with a longer driveway. It doesn't have to be a very nice house because I'm not that hard to please, but throw me a freaking bone here. Our neighbors hired this Mexican guy named Pedro and he did a really dandy job on their roof, I am sure you could work something out with him so I can park in my own driveway. I do not think he has a cell phone so I do not know his number but I see him with a taco a lot so you can try calling him on that 2. You could give my tickets to my neighbor, since she is a weird bitch and lives in a nicer house. She probably has the money to pay up with, so I think you should give as many tickets to her as you can. As a starting point, you can give her tickets for having barbeques and when I smell the yummy meat, she won't let me have any and tells me to go to a soul food place or something for some chicken and watermelon. Maybe can ticket her for having great ideas because that is certainly one of them 3. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS I HOPE TO HEAR FORM YOU SOON dance:
